After a series of successful global releases, MTV coverage and NME articles DJ/Producer Mik Newton announces "I'm gonna be coming out of the closet in terms of my DJ alto-ego Supercharge".
The UK producer had been working under the guise of Supercharge for years as what has been described by many as a Gorillaz or Daft Punk style persona.
The artist's single 'Go On Build It Up' released in 2014 reached the dizzy heights of no. 4 in the Indie/Dance charts with claims from the artist that 'Its more popular than The Beatles Sgt. Pepper!".
After further investigation it became apparent that the claim was in fact true and judging by the continued full popularity bar evidenced on the artists iTunes download page, it remains true as of the date this article was published.
Music industry critics have demonised the Indie artist for 'Not playing ball' when he decided to give his entire album away for free at the height of its success and despite being offered a number of slots in Europe Mik chose to play unpaid at what he describes as his local, 'The Polar Bear' music venue in Kingston-Upon-Hull.
Mik recently turned down a series of German gig dates much to dislike of the German press and PR companies claiming "I'm just too busy enjoying myself ta!".
So why the sudden change of heart? (We asked Mik) "It just felt like the right time to come clean" he commented. "I'm gonna be DJing under my own name from now on and reserve the Supercharge name and brand for collaborative projects" "That was the original idea in the early days anyway" he adds "The name was born out of a dance night I was running back in the day which featured Dub, Funk, Breaks and Drum'n'Bass DJs, it somehow became my adopted DJ name and just stuck from there!".
He has made his presence once again known. Expect even bigger things in the future………….
The Single ‘Go On Build It Up!’ is available to buy now through Purple Worm Records and can be bought in all major online stores including…
